Overview

Vetrasian scientist Mila Groso built a career out of developing cures for the galaxy’s deadliest diseases. After her husband and daughter are murdered in cold blood, she makes it her mission to find a cure for death itself. Her guilt over their deaths provides the ultimate motivation.

Mila isn’t the only one interested in her research, though. When the planet’s religious leader sends his minions to stop her from potentially negating the existence of an afterlife, and a mysterious mercenary threatens her life unless she hands the research over, it becomes obvious too many people know what she’s doing.

Fighting to stay alive, Mila must fend off both groups with their diametrically opposed goals and find the ultimate cure to resurrect her family. With so much hanging on her choices, this potential miracle may end up a greater curse than she can imagine.

    Not bad. Not bad at all. Interesting concept. Our heroine, Mila

    Not bad. Not bad at all.

    Interesting concept. Our heroine, Mila Groso has built a thriving pharmaceutical research facility with her long time schoolmate and friend, Susan. Over the years, the company has produced many vital and important drugs and technologies for society as a whole. The one area they are not allowed to work in, as dictated by the current religiously controlled government, is re-animation of any type. Those found delving into this arena will be quickly extinguished from their post and existence. Mila has no problem adhering to the mandates until tragedy strikes when her husband and daughter are murdered. Will Mila continue to follow the dogma of the government, or will she secretly conduct experiments to revive the dead? That’s the story in a nutshell.
    The pros. Mr. Hunter does a good job in keeping the action moving forward with a good relaxing clip. 
    The cons: When it comes to action scenes, I look for believability, and at times, I felt Mila was encountering, situations above and beyond her physical capabilities. 
    The futuristic scenarios are well planned out and developed. Vey nice.
    I found it a bit redundant being reminded why Mila is doing what she’s doing. I believe some of those passages could be eliminated without deterring the story at all.
    I found some minor editing issues that did not detract from the story, but when time permits, it wouldn’t hurt to go back and straighten them out.
    Who will enjoy this read? Those who enjoy a good futuristic who done it tale.
    Well done Mr. Hunter

    Hunter Does It Again -- and Then Some!

    Jack D. Hunter has written several best-sellers, all of which have recently been reissued by Replica Books. His last offering was ¿Slingshot¿ originally published in 1995. It¿s been a long dry spell, but Hunter has finally done it again. And ¿The Cure¿ (from Tor-Forge Books) is his best yet. It has already started a buzz on the Internet; people are reading it, people are buying it, and people are talking about it, with good reason. What if someone discovered a cure for cancer which is truly miraculous -- one that could also prevent cancer? The formula would be worth millions -- but where there¿s big money, there¿s somebody trying to steal it. ¿The Cure¿ is the tale of a massively Machiavellian sting centering around the miraculous cure and its ownership. The scientist who discovered The Cure dies mysteriously in an airplane crash. Suddenly dead bodies are turning up all over the sleepy suburb of Zieglersville, and one man always seems to be somehow involved. But nobody can prove it, and everybody has a different opinion of him. Some say he¿s a rat¿s rat. Others insist he¿s the world¿s sweetest teddy bear. Is he guilty or victim? Hunter is noted for his meticulous research, and this book is no exception. He maneuvers around medical terminology with ease, devising stings and counter-stings, deals and counter-deals, all within an entirely believable high-tech, big-bucks pharmaceutical world. But he¿s never without his sense of humor and quirky ability to twist the English language to his own ends (a ¿sklurt¿ of oil, for instance). In short, ¿The Cure¿ is a must-read for Hunter fans, espionage fans and anybody looking for a believable and entirely absorbing tale of larceny, lechery, and licentiousness. Highly recommended.
